……

According to “Joss Whedon: The Biography,” in stores August 1, Hiddleston, who plays antihero Loki in the film, wrote Whedon a heartfelt email after reading Whedon’s draft for the first time.

We’ve published Hiddleston’s letter in full along with Whedon’s response with permission from Chicago Review Press below.

Joss,

I am so excited I can hardly speak.

The first time I read it I grabbed at it like Charlie Bucket snatching for a golden ticket somewhere behind the chocolate in the wrapper of a Wonka Bar. I didn’t know where to start. Like a classic actor I jumped in looking for LOKI on every page, jumping back and forth, reading words in no particular order, utterances imprinting themselves like flash-cuts of newspaper headlines in my mind: “real menace”; “field of obeisance”; “discontented, nothing is enough”; “his smile is nothing but a glimpse of his skull“; “Puny god” …

… Thank you for writing me my Hans Gruber. But a Hans Gruber with super-magic powers. As played by James Mason … It’s high operatic villainy alongside detached throwaway tongue-in-cheek; plus the “real menace” and his closely guarded suitcase of pain. It’s grand and epic and majestic and poetic and lyrical and wicked and rich and badass and might possibly be the most gloriously fun part I’ve ever stared down the barrel of playing. It is just so juicy

I love how throughout you continue to put Loki on some kind of pedestal of regal magnificence and then consistently tear him down. He gets battered, punched, blasted, side-swiped, roared at, sent tumbling on his back, and every time he gets back up smiling, wickedly, never for a second losing his eloquence, style, wit, self-aggrandisement or grandeur, and you never send him up or deny him his real intelligence…. That he loves to make an entrance; that he has a taste for the grand gesture, the big speech, the spectacle. I might be biased, but I do feel as though you have written me the coolest part.

… But really I’m just sending you a transatlantic shout-out and first-bump, things that traditionally British actors probably don’t do. It’s epic.

Whedon wrote back with a simplistic response:

Tom, this is one of those emails you keep forever. Thanks so much. It’s more articulate (and possibly longer) than the script. I couldn’t be more pleased at your reaction, but I’ll also tell you I’m still working on it … Thank you again. I’m so glad you’re pleased. Absurd fun to ensue.

Best, (including uncharacteristic fist bump), joss.

Day 2: Avengers Thor and Loki 

Ah, yes. The controversial cosplay that is ravaging tumblr right now.

It’s a shame, really. This costume was my very first cosplay I’ve done from scratch. Right down to the top and skirt.  However all that is being lost due to ignorance. In fact, this kind of attention is making my cousin ill. So this is why racism is important to acknowledge, why its important to realize how whiteness in our favorite media is helping to shape people into saying that we’re just silly ‘black girls’ for being anything else other than ‘gangsta’ girls and aunt jemimas. 

ANYWAYS. 

My two favorite photos from the photoshoot at the Otakon Photo Booth.

My cousin is the lovely Lady Loki and I am Lady Thor.

You two are simply FANTASTIC! Those costumes are great and it’s obvious that they’re a work of love, and there’s a lot of love and effort put into them. Everything about this cosplay is great.

You’re definitely not ‘silly’ and those haters are just jealous because they could not do anywhere near as good a job as you did. Hell, I doubted that they even TRIED, so they do the only thing they’ve got left for pathetic people like them: hate.

Please tell your cousin that her Loki is great, and to not let the haters get her down. I know it’s only a few words on tumblr that I can offer, but she’s fantastic and you’re fantastic.

Petition for all the Marvel actors to agree that whenever Scarlett gets a blatantly sexist question one of the Chrises just takes it instead.

You have my signature.

Fucking magic.

Is that Mark Ruffalo?

I sincerely hope so.

The Real World: Avengers Tower

  • Interviewer: So what's it like living with Tony?
  • Bruce: When I moved in, he insisted on funding all of my research. Except, you know, ever since The Incident, all my work's been theoretical. It's not actually that expensive. I've started just spending all the extra on fruit pies, just to see if he was keeping track. He isn't. There are a lot of unused rooms in this building, and at least three of them are stacked floor to ceiling with fruit pies. He hasn't said a word.
  • Natasha: It turned out Pepper and I both speak French. Tony doesn't. Now, whenever he walks in, we just start whispering in French and giggling. Half the time we're just exchanging recipes. He pretends not to be eavesdropping, but the other day I caught him asking JARVIS what 'des oeufs' meant.
  • Clint: I bought this big bag of little plastic flies, right? And whenever he's not paying attention, I throw them into his drink. Half the time he doesn't even notice and just drinks the damn things, but the other half? He starts checking all the house filtration systems, the exterminators, the works. He can't figure out where all these flies are coming from. He's fumigated three times in the last month.
  • Thor: I attempted to provide assistance with a project, but Stark assured me that it was 'very technical', and that I would not understand the intricacies. I can see why he would think so, as I am a mere Prince of Asgard, taught such basic engineering when I was a child and his ancestors could not yet walk. It has been five weeks, and he still has not corrected the misaligned condenser coil causing the problem.
  • Steve: I don't know what Howard taught that kid, but he seems to be under the impression that homosexuality was invented in 2000. He keeps leaving magazines and pictures lying around like the sight of two men holding hands is going to give me a heart attack. I don't have the heart to tell him about the Greeks.
  • Interviewer: So how are things in Avengers Tower?
  • Tony: How are things? I have no idea. I really don't. There's some kind of insect infestation in the vents and I think a spy is trying to seduce my girlfriend into moving to France. I tried to prank Captain America with gay porn, but him and Thor just started trying to reverse-engineer workout routines. The other day I went into one of the spare rooms, and I found some kind of one-armed sex hobo sitting on a throne of empty fruit pie boxes. I just walked out and closed the door. I don't even wanna know.

Do you remember in Thor, when he was under attack and all his friends came to help his ass out?  This is what he’s stuck doing when shit’s under attack in Avengers.  Hitting people who are technically on his side with giant hammers.  Thinking, “Why did I even bother learning anything, universe?  I could just be professional genius/pretty lady Jane Foster’s latest kind-of-shitty boyfriend right now, all drinking coffee and eating junk food and not paying rent.  All of this could be Loki’s problem.  Someone go get Loki out of that stupid box and tell him I don’t want to be king anymore.  Tell him he’s in charge of shit now.  And that I haven’t processed anyone’s tax returns yet.  And that the frost giants are suing us over that stunt he pulled.  And that dad’s pretending to be asleep again.  Tell him I said good luck with all that.”
